All themes relate to the way African and African Diaspora philosophy, identity and culture play a role in solving (or worsening) the social, political and economic challenges highlighted above. The conference also explores the relationship between African philosophy and culture in terms of how they conflict, collaborate, or otherwise configure each other as people are subjected to different life systems in global Africa.

Conference Notice: The Making, Unmaking and Remaking of Africa’s Independence and Post-Independence Constitutions

There is an urgent need to critically dilate on the processes of constitution-making, in its full generality, as a distinctive object of positive analysis. Papers exploring the constitutional developments in Africa should be based on country case studies or a comparative study of the constitution of two or more countries. Papers should examine how the underlining principles of constitution-making address both (i) how the process was conducted in terms of its being participatory and consultative (see Menski, 2019) and (ii) the content of the constitution that was produced and (iii) the reaction of the public to it. Papers should reflect key aspects of the historical contexts in which the particular process took place, and also the broader international norms, standards, and precedents that informed these processes.

Conference Notice: Conference on Caliban's Reason: 20 Years Strong

Conference Theme:

“Caliban, Knowledge Societies, Caribbean and Global African Development”

Broadly conceived, this Conference will celebrate the milestone of Caliban’s Reason as an awakening of the Philosophical genius of the Caribbean peoples and subalterns globally, both in the struggles, the breakthroughs and the visionary pathways that this region has been able to engineer for peoples of the region and global marginalized, dispossessed and disempowered. In this regard, the development of African Philosophies, African Diaspora Philosophies and other non-European Philosophies will be celebrated in their liberating efforts, as antecedents, antithesis and dissolution mechanisms to Greco-European pretensions to singularity of humanity. Discourses and interrogations around such aspects of the intellectual histories, developments of civilizations, sciences, technologies, religions of humans in ancient Americas, Africa and the Caribbean post-plantation, post-emancipation, post-colonial and within the contexts of globalized hegemonies and resistances are welcome
